St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Attorneys handling Xarelto lawsuit claims report an anticipated Status Conference in the Xarelto Products Liability Litigation multidistrict litigation (MDL 2592) now underway in Louisiana District Court. The status conference is scheduled to take place this Friday, February 27 at 9:00 am, according to court documents.
Xarelto lawsuits were first consolidated in Louisiana in December of 2014. Plaintiffs involved in the litigation allege that they have suffered injuries as a result of Xarelto, including but not limited to internal bleeding, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism. Among the counts plaintiffs have filed against drug’s makers, Bayer and Johnson and Johnson, are allegations that the drug’s warning label did not adequately caution consumers serious health risks associated with the drug. Furthermore, plaintiffs claim Xarelto was promoted as superior to warfarin, which they assert is false.
To date, nearly 100 claims have been filed as part of the consolidated Xarelto lawsuits, according to court documents. These claims share common facts, each having been filed by or on behalf of a person who suffered from internal bleeding or stroke they say are connected to Xarelto.
Early status conferences establish methods and procedures for pretrial proceedings such as the Discovery process, according to the Onder Law Firm. As Xarelto lawsuits progress, new claims may be consolidated at any time. Lawyers handling national Xarelto lawsuits are accepting inquiries from persons and the families of persons who suffered an injury while taking Xarelto. These inquiries will be considered for possible inclusion in the multidistrict litigation. Distinct from class action lawsuits, MDLs enable an efficient processing of similar claims, such as in the case of a defective or dangerous product, while preserving the individual details of each case for trial or settlement purposes, according to attorneys handling Xarelto claims at the Xarelto Contingency Lawsuit website.
